Above: Bill and Nancy Bamberger tell KPBS reporter Joanne Faryon why they voted against Proposition 13 in 1978.

— San Diego homeowners Bill and Nancy Bamberger explain why they voted against Proposition 13.

The Bambergers are among the 8 percent of homeowners in San Diego County who have owned their homes since the proposition passed in 1978. Prop 13 rolled back property taxes, capped them at 1 percent of the purchase price, and limited yearly increases to 2 percent.

Check out our companion report of Jerzy and Jolanta Lewak, who voted in support of Prop 13.

KPBS is examining the legacy of Prop 13 in a series of radio, TV, and web reports leading up to a half-hour documentary that airs Monday, March 29, 2010, at 9 p.m. on KPBS television.
